About Monks Cowl Nature Reserve

The Monks Cowl Nature Reserve is located in the Ukhahlamba Darkensberg Park. It is named after the peak located between the scenic mountains of Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak.

There are numerous hiking routes that pass through the magnificent valleys and forests of the Northern Drakensberg. The routes vary in intensity and length, ranging from a few hours to a few days. Accommodation has to be arranged beforehand for those who are interested in doing more than a one-day hike.

The foothills have many caves to explore, most of which were used by the San people. The 'Battle Cave' has rock art portraying a battle between two San tribes.
